This article presents the author's views on future developments in computer programming. According to the author the investments one makes in training developers, equipping them with tools and building IT environments for users should all be affected by what one expects to be the answers to these questions. Other symbol-processing skills made the transition long ago from specialty to everyday ability. The title of scribe, for someone who could take dictation or prepare a written document, used to label a set of skills that could make a person a viable living. Component architectures like JavaBeans, combined with frameworks like J2EE or the .Net view of Web services, enable environments that almost draw a map of the places developers can go and the routes they can take. These component and service-oriented environments readily display the functions that are available, and the connections that are meaningful, among business logic objects (such as Web services) and information assets (such as databases). The productivity impact of tools like these is huge, but any given developer may be either holding the handle or receiving the blows of that hammer of forceful change.
